There’s more to Gay for Johnny Depp (you would though, wouldn’t you?) than just a magnificent moniker. The Brooklyn-based foursome are also incredibly adept at music-making, as proven by this ferocious debut which assaults the ears from the get-go by whipping up a frenzy of scratchy riffs, pummelled basslines, frenetic rhythms and mind-melting time changes. Killer tracks such as ‘You Have a Theory, I Have a Gun’, ‘Very Little Good Happens Between 3 and 4 in the Morning’, and ‘Belief in God is so Adorable’ are definitely not for the faint hearted, but people who like their guitar offerings hard, fast, smart and ever so sexy should definitely give this a shot.
